2016 Chevrolet Sonic

Sonic is a sporty, small car for those who want more than just a way to get around. It's for people who love to have a little fun behind the wheel thanks to the available turbocharged engine that offers an EPA-estimated 40 MPG highway. In fact, Sonic has quite a history when it comes to safety. The 2015 Sonic was named a 2015 Top Safety Pick in its Small Car segment by The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS). Plus it's the first car in its class to offer 10 standard air bags.
